Skyscraper Inspired by Crystal

The future of the market belongs to projects such as Q22, a 155-meter office tower with over 50,000 square meters of office space, under construction in Warsaw’s business district at the intersection of Jana Pawła II Avenue and Grzybowska Street. The site was previously occupied by a Mercure hotel and all materials removed from the site have been recycled, producing 1,500 metric tons of steel and 25,000 tons of recycled concrete aggregate.

Designed as a multi-purpose green building, the Q22 tower is also the first skyscraper in Warsaw to be designed by the Polish Kuryłowicz & Associates architects’ studio jointly with Buro Happold Polska. The final design was preceded by thorough analyses of factors that would determine how the building was perceived from the outside and the purpose it was intended to serve. The goal was to ensure that the various functions of the building would be well integrated and all of the customers’ needs would be taken into account. After much thought, the designers and the investor decided on a shape inspired by the structure of a crystal. The Q22 tower’s distinctive and elegant form makes it stand out among other buildings in the downtown area, meets the investor’s expectations and makes the most of the location.

The Q22 building, which will cost zl.500 million, is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2016. In September 2013, Modzelewski & Rodek was chosen as the contractor on the shell of the building.
